Students Receive Arial Lift Platform Training
Students enrolled in Superior CVI’s Manufacturing Specialist High Skills Major program received expert training and hands-on experience through real-life work scenarios this week. Equipment World was on site to teach the students how to safely operate an outdoor scissor lift.
This sector-specific learning opportunity earned the students their Working at Heights training and their Arial Lift Platform training, resulting in the acquisition of important and sought-after resume credentials.
“This valuable education not only teaches the students valuable life skills, but it ensures that the students graduating from the Manufacturing Specialist High Skills Major program have the required safety training that makes them desirable to any workforce,” said Curtis Sandberg, teacher of the Manufacturing Specialist High Skills Major program.
In his teachings and through specialized training sessions, Mr. Sandberg prepares the students for careers in various manufacturing industries, such as welder metal worker, millwright machinist, mechanical engineer machine operator, production operator assembler, and quality controller. “If an employer, especially in the manufacturing sector, sees that a candidate already has certificates like First Aid / CPR, Working at Heights, and Aerial Lift Platform training, they know that they will be hiring a well-educated and motivated individual who knows how to work safely and has the desire to succeed.”
Students enrolled in Superior CVI’s Manufacturing Specialist High Skills Major program can customize their secondary education to suit their interests and talents while meeting graduation requirements.
The program aims at preparing students to be successful in any post-secondary pathway whether it is the workforce or additional education and exit with safety specific training and certificates that directly benefit them in the path they choose.
Alex Foulds, Grade 12 student enrolled in Superior CVI’s Manufacturing Specialist High Skills Major program, said he enrolled in this program because it teaches skills and concepts that prove to be helpful in the college welding program he is planning to attend. “I love to work with my hands; I like to build things. I find it’s exciting to learn how to do this stuff, it’s a lot of good knowledge. It’s really nice to see our school giving the students a chance to participate in extra training and learning experiences,” said Foulds.
